    I was just watching this Lost Broadway Treasures thing(I think) on PBS, in the show they mentioned only 7 people have ever won both Tony and Oscar for the same roles they played in both Broadway and film. Two were mentioned, Joel Grey as MC in Cabaret, Yul Bryner as King in King and I, and I beleive Rex Harrison as Professor in My Fair Lady would be another, anybody know who the other 4 may be?
